This is a small sample of our 50's/60's stock. You can access our full listings from the "Listings" page. 

 



Esquerita - Wild Cat Shakeout

Ember - SPE 6603

Condition - VG/EX

Little Richard should be paying this guy royalties for the hair-cut and the singing style. A true original and rock n roll of the finest order.

£40.00


Rip Chords - Hey Little Cobra

CBS - BPG 62281 - mono

Condition - NEX/EX (tape on back cover seams)

Surf /Hot Rod music was huge in the USA but in the UK all this stuff was a mystery in 1964 when this album was released. We got the Beach Boys albums but very little else which makes this record a real rarity as a UK issue. It's great too with covers of Little Deuce Coupe, Shut Down and the ace title track.

£80.00


Pupils - A Tribute To the Rolling Stones

Wing - WL 1150

Condition - VG/VG

Freakbeat legends The Eyes recorded this album of Stones cover in 1966 for a budget label. It probably took a day, they probably didn't take it seriously but....they couldn't avoid investing it with a power and venom which the Stones themselves would have envied.

You like freakbeat? You need this.

£60.00


Dion - Runaround Sue

Laurie LLP 2009 - U.S

Condition - NEX/EX

Irresistable rock n roll from one of the early stars. This rare American album includes Runaround Sue, The Wanderer, Kansas City etc all delivered with a drive that will bring a smile to your face.

£80.00


Mary Hopkin - Those Were the Days

Apple - SW 3395 - U.S

Condition EX/EX

An interesting career. Pop singer dicovered by  TV show Opportunity Knocks and  Paul McCartney but also a very credible Welsh folkie with rare records sung in Welsh on obscure Welsh labels. And she was married to Bowie/Bolan producer Tony Visconti.

This is a difficult album to find and has the title track, Temma Harbour, Knock Knock Who's There and a version of Lennon/McCartney's "Goodbye" amongst others. 

£60.00


Roy Orbison - Memphis

London - SHU 8445

Condition - NEX/EX

A huge star in the 60's, but in the 70's Roy drifted onto the cabaret circuit and his record sales dipped alarmingly. Of course, in the 80's he became a Travelin Wilbury and a huge star all over again. This 1972 album is one of his rarest and it's pretty good too.

£50.00


Brian Auger & Trinity - Definitely What

Atco - SD 33-273 - U.S

Condition - NEX/EX

A pioneer of British R n B, Auger has made some great albums in a long career and is only now beginning to get full recognition. This 1969 album of jazzy R n B has Auger working with Dave Ambrose & Clive Thacker on self composed material and covers of A Day In the Life & Red Beans

£50.00


Cream - Disraeli Gears

Reaction  593 003 - mono

Condition - NEX/EX

Cream's best and most influential album is a great mix of psychedelia and blues. Clapton made his reputation with John Mayall but he made a real leap forward here although his future progressions became something of a cul de sac.

The iconic Martin Sharpe cover is a classic period piece and this mono version has a far punchier mix than the stereo equivalent.

No rock collection is complete without this!

£75.00


Gale Storm - Sentimental Me

London - HAD 2104 - mono

Condition - NEX/EX

Original mono issue on the plum coloured London label. This is the rare 1958 album from the American radio/TV star who turned to singing. Gale is backed by an orchestra directed by Billy Vaughan and, not surprisingly, the arrangements are terrific.

£75.00


Emile Ford - Emile

Piccadilly - NPL 38001 - mono

Condition - NEX/EX

How often do you see LPs on Piccadilly?

This is Mr Ford's 1962 album and he definitely fancies himself as the British Harry Belafonte although he does tackle Fever and Lawdy Miss Claudy. He deserves a prize for having the cojones to wear that shirt! 

£40.00


Shadows - Surfing With the Shadows

Atlantic - 8089 - U.S. - mono

Condition - NEX/EX

The Shadows were huge in the UK and Europe in the 60's but they struggled to make any impression in the States where there were any number of guitar bands - the Ventures in particular. As a result all their U.S. albums are stupidly rare including this 1963 collection which includes hits such as Dance On, Man Of Mystery and F.B.I.

The title is misleading - there wasn't much surfing in the UK in the sixties!!

£200.00

Crickets - Something Old Something New...

Liberty - LBY 1120 - mono

Condition - EX/EX

Even without Buddy Holly the Crickets had much to offer as this rare 1962 outing proves. Sonny Curtis and Jerry Allison were fine composers and players and they went on to have very succesful careers.
